Review Notes: Cohiba is the one brand that has become a household name...Even in households with no cigar smokers. While the line remains consistent, and the construction is excellent; this brand is extremely overrated. Yes, this is one smoker's humble opinion; but it comes after smoking many different sizes over the span of 15 years. It's just not as good as the hype that precedes it. This includes the Robusto. Nothing is spared in it's beautiful presentation...Varnished slide lid box, beautiful rings (though I prefer the original), and nice wrappers with good sheen. It better have all that, considering it is THE most expensive Cuban robusto on the market. It's not a terrible cigar, but it just doesn't seem to have the complexity that such a celebrated cigar should; despite the cost. There is a basic core of tobacco tastes, some earthy qualities, and a salty finish. Very ordinary, and does not compare to such great robustos as those from El Rey Del Mundo, Ramone Allones, or Saint Luis Rey; which are all complex in taste....And literally half the cost or less. For obvious reasons, this is also one of the most counterfeited cigars, so newcomers beware.

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (13) No (13)
